"I Nearly Died Laughing was printed in the strange warm-chill Spring of 1974, when people ran naked in the streets. Fifteen copies were printed on my own handmade paper and thirty-five copies on Nideggan paper using Bembo and Palatino types and photoengravings from my own photographs. Handmade copies were sewn by hand, while other copies were perfect bound, both using Nat Mat beaver brown cover paper..."--Colophon.
